“Outstanding! Hospitality, creativity, locations, comfort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

We recently spent 4 nights at Blue Hill Inn during the quiet and beautiful fall season. We've been visiting the Blue Hill and Deer Isle area for many years and are delighted to have a new home base. Our room was comfortable and quiet, the common spaces were gracious and pleasant. We savored the delicious breakfasts and snacks, and enjoyed the company of the other friendly guests. Sarah's warm hospitality and stockpile of local information about everything from hiking to quirky art galleries truly set the Blue Hill Inn apart from most B&B experiences. Best of all was the Meet the Farmer Dinner with El El Frijoles' chefs Michele and Michael making magic from local farm offerings. We'll be back!

Room Tip: A couple of the rooms have larger bathrooms.

After 10 years, we decided to visit this charming Inn again and refresh fun memories from the times we spent there with our children. To our big surprise, the Inn has gotten even better! There is a new owner, Sarah, who not only renovated the whole Inn without destroying its old world charm, (you even get internet in every room, free) but who also bends backwards to accommodate every wish; making restaurant reservation, finding activities for a rainy day, giving great tips of places to go off the beaten path and much more! Besides serving a delicious breakfast, Sarah offers afternoon tea with fresh baked cookies (the Inn smells heavenly) and 'happy hour' with great wine, served very generously! We truly cannot wait to go back next summer if not before!

BHI is a quintessential New England hotel. The building is historic, but the interior is beautifully maintained and very comfortable. The public rooms are all inviting. Breakfast is locally purveyed and delicious, and the menu choices vary daily. Finally, the entire staff is available, friendly, and very helpful.

This was our first stay at a B&B, and consequently our first stay at the Blue Hill Inn. What an amazing experience we had. Sarah, the Innkeeper, is a warm, friendly, exceptional host. From the time she greeted us upon arrival to the day of our check out we felt that we were in wonderful hands. The Cape House Suite is truly a home away from home. We actually referred to the suite as our home during our stay. The breakfast each day was delicious and believe me, this was no normal breakfast! It was unparalleled. The staff is that of a five star restaurant. It was with heavy hearts that we checked out after four nights, however, we know for sure that we will be returning in the future.

Room Tip: The Cape House Suite was a wonderful option for those seeking a little more privacy and it is pet fr...

Green Features: We loved the fact that they were conservative with water usage, there is no need for towels to be changed every day. They compost, and have free range chickens off site which provide the Inn with wonderful fresh eggs. They also support many local businesses by using their products at the Inn.

We were in Blue Hill attending a nearby wedding. The inn is conveniently located, our room was nicely decorated with a very comfortable bed! The innkeeper was friendly and helpful and the afternoon snacks, baked treats and breakfasts were outstanding. Would certainly stay again if ever back in the area!

Each room is different in this intimate little gem in the heart of Blue Hill. Every morning breakfast started with fresh fruit, a small pastry (date scone, blueberry muffin) and a choice of 5 dishes. All were fabulous, as was the friendly service and delightful, attentive owner.

Will definitely repeat!

The service here is exceptional and outstanding! We stayed here on a 9 day trip up on the coast of Maine. That's really all I need to say. Sarah, the owner, is lovely. She sits with you, talks to you, brings you a welcome beverage and sweet treat. The staff at breakfast is so attentive, kind, quick. Breakfast is delicious. They are very professional. We had a loft room or maybe kind of a converted attic room and it was great with comfortable beds and linens and nice toiletries. Neat antiques too. Our children loved having their own little area and they loved the painted wooden chickens Sarah gave to them-so cute. Thank you, Sarah. We loved Blue Hill and how quiet it was. You feel like you are away from the rest of the tourist here. We went to a pretty park on the point there which had nice playground equipment. The pottery place there was so kind-they let our 5 year old create on the pottery wheel and insisted on shipping her item to us free of charge, which we should get at Christmas time. We ate the Barncastle and food was good.
